So here I am again, after about a month of not being around. So in the past month a few interesting things happened... I was working on the Mayor's Landscape Awards for the Department of Environment and got to work with Mayor Daley (the mayor of Chicago) for a day. He thanked me for the work I did on the UFORE project (which is a study on the urban forest of Chicago). I got to stand with him in front of several network cameras for a few hours and took a picture with him also. That was pretty cool.
Also I've been elected president of my chapter of the Jaycees, and my boyfriend Jon joined as well. We spend a weekend a few weeks ago in St. Louis going to the GA they had down there for some leadership training. I got to tour the Budweiser Brewery and saw the Arch.
While I'm still interning at the DOE on a part-time basis I also got a real job at a restoration company so I finally accomplished my long-term goal of getting into the field of restoration work. It pays well, and it makes me feel like all that hard work getting my Environmental Science degree was worth it. So Hooray! Also I've been working some real long days which has contributed to my lack of being online.
Lets see.... Also I had a huge Halloween party at my new place with my downstairs neighbors, had about 50 or so people come by. I was a nurse. And I had my 26th birthday on the 7th! Yay I'm older.
But I did take a few pics here and there. Also today I completed a 2008 calendar which I plan on selling. So I'm still trying to figure out how to submit it on DA. I also have it for sale on Facebook, so if you're on there let me know and I'll show it to you.
Well I'll try to get the calendar together, mail out those photos I owe people, submit some more photos on here and try to shake off this damn cold!! See you later.
